Lazyhorse – Lazyhorse

This debut disc from Winnipeg rock n roll super-group (of sorts) Lazyhorse is ten tracks of bluesy, fuzzed out rock n roll. From toe-tapping rockers to beer swilling doozies, the short album takes you for a booze cruise in the back of an old Eldorado along Winnipeg’s seedy side-streets and back lanes. With straight-up blues rockers like “Last Call,” to the nasty punk rock of “Baby Don’t You Play That Song,” to tunes like “Straw House” and “Wild Again,” which have a psychedelic flavour to them, Lazyhorse spices things up within the relatively limited field a blues based bar band can explore. With vocals shared evenly between guitar players Jan Quackenbush and Kyle Dubois, each track remains fresh. This debut is a great disc to throw on at a party when the house is really rocking, or when you’re at home, alone, hammering back a couple fast Luck-Dogs after work, trying to get a jump on the night. Looking forward to hearing more from these folks soon. (Eat Em Up Records) Sheldon Birnie
